I know what you are thinking…, This is one of those fluffy blog posts on why its important to smell the roses in your business. Well it is very important to enjoy the rewards your business brings you. It is so important that it can fuel you do even more! I had a challenging start to my summer this year. I had to deal with a loss in the family, a back injury from a car accident and a few hiccups along the way. This made for an interesting time in my life.
With all of these tough times, I have had some amazing business rewards that have come my way. There are a few highlights that I will be sharing in the next few months that have really allowed to gain some perspective on my business ventures. I have finally understood what my why factor will be going into 2013.
I teach my start up clients to enjoy every single success in their business. One of my proudest moments this year was when I had a client acknowledge at a large event for growth of his business. It was the reaction in his eyes and the words that came from the heart that made it more rewarding. I always get excited when I get called up to speak at a major event because someone has recognized the value in my keynote. There are many perks to having a business both big and small. It is important to stay humble by all of these successes. Its even more important to take the time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Those moments define where you are going and what you are going to do next.
The fuel that has pushed me in 2012 has been the rewards that have come my way this year both big and small. Recognition goes along way and it validates all your efforts, hard work and time you invest in your business.
